Medardo Rosso

19282 01Rome dedicates for the first time a monographic exhibition to Medardo Rosso. It is the National Roman Museum which, in the Palazzo Altemps headquarters, presents the ambitious exhibition in collaboration with the Galleria d’Arte Moderna in Milan from 10 October 2019 to 2 February 2020 and with the support of the Medardo Rosso Museum in Barzio, with the organization and the promotion of Electa.

The unprecedented selection of works in wax, plaster and bronze, and their transformations, combined with the collection of sculptures of Palazzo Altemps investigates, as never before, the relationship with the ancient and the concept of copying in Medardo Rosso.

Canova. Eternal beauty

19281 01

An exhibition-event focused on the link between Antonio Canova and the city of Rome, with over 170 works and prestigious loans from important museums and Italian and foreign collections.

Framed within an installation of great visual impact, over 170 works by Canova and some contemporary artists enliven the rooms of the Museum of Rome in Palazzo Braschi. The exhibition tells in 13 sections Canovian art and the context that the sculptor found when he arrived in the city in 1779.

Through sophisticated lighting solutions, the warm atmosphere of torchlight is recalled along the exhibition route, with which the artist, at the end of the eighteenth century, showed his works to the guests, at night, in the atelier in Via delle Colonnette.

Palazzo Braschi Museum of Rome: until 15 March 2020

Ars Erotica – The art of non-violent love in ancient Rome

19134 01

At the Stadium of Domitian was opened the exhibition “The art of not-violent love in ancient Rome”, a collaboration between Codacons and MANN. It is a real “path” in eroticism through art and works kept at the Museo Archeologico Nazionale in Naples.

The initiative will be open to middle and high schools throughout Italy to explain to students, through the help of psychologists and experts, the relationship between affectivity and sex, integrating psychology with art in order to identify a different key to speaking to young people of love, eroticism and sensuality and fighting the phenomena of bullying and violence against women, unfortunately constantly growing in Italy.

The exhibition will be open until November 6th 2019.

Robert Mapplethorpe. The Sensitive Lens

19073 01-2

This exhibition shows forty-five works and focuses on some of the themes that distinguish the work of Robert Mapplethorpe (1946-1989): his study of still lifes, landscapes, classical sculpture and Renaissance composition.

The photographs have been selected and arranged in Galleria Corsini with several different aims: to highlight the aspects of Mapplethorpe’s work that resonate particularly with Galleria Corsini, a space — in both physical and conceptual terms — dedicated to collecting, in order to forge a new relationship between visitors, the works and the areas within the gallery.

Altaroma January 2019

19025 01

New spaces, young talents and independent brands: the fashion shows and the events of Altaroma, the Rome fashion week, are back in January 2019 – for the presentation of the Fall-Winter 2019-2020 collections – in a renewed edition that nevertheless, does not lose its link with the artisan tradition of fashion houses and ateliers of the territory.

This season is based in the PratiBus District, a multi-purpose space of 5 thousand square meters in a portion of the former ATAC “Vittoria” depot, in Viale Angelico, which consists of four macro areas, dedicated to the different types of activities and inside which the main productions and fashion shows will take place.

Le Vie del Ponte

18363 01

Via dei Banchi Nuovi, via di Panico, via del Governo Vecchio, Piazza dell’Orologio, via Orsini, Largo Tassoni are LE VIE DEL PONTE that look at Castel Sant’Angelo and will host musical, artistic and cultural events at the end of February. This is the initiative organized by the V.E.S.T.A. to enhance the area through a real atmosphere of participation among tourists, citizens and traders.

“The Ponte district, whose name derives from the pedestrian Ponte Sant’Angelo, built by Adriano in 134 d. C. extends in reality in a much larger territory that reaches up to via della Pace and via dei Coronari, but ours – says Gianfranco Labib, president of VESTA, which includes over thirty activities in the area – is a little step to start making the territory better known, which develops on economic activities whose productions, since the Middle Ages, attracted citizens, merchants, pilgrims and tourists of the grand tour. We hope we can return, through the revitalization of the area through small events with great content, to that influx dictated by the curiosity to discover the work of a goldsmith, mosaicist, leather goods, painter, sculptor, marble worker, how to enjoy shopping, catering and receptivity sharing a piece of our history together.” (see photo gallery)
